She who Stands Where I Stood

In the last post I alluded to us moving. I’ve moved so much in the past year, I feel like a gypsy (only I take showers and smell better). Anyway, Landon and moved in next door with Jason this weekend. It's a bigger place, roughly the same price, and has off-street parking; that’s overall the largest win, cause when you live somewhere that everyone else wants to live, it’s a bitch to park. Granted, Landon and I still park on the street whenever convenient, because fuck everyone… we’ve had to walk a block or so to get home before, why should we make it easier for other people?

We were actually thinking of just throwing shit out of Landon’s window or rigging up a pulley system, since his old window was directly beside the new place. That way we would avoid the gazillion flights of stairs. OHhh how these stairs have memories of drinkety drunk times before!

Anyway, one of the things I wont miss about the old place is the plumbing. Because our building was one of the oldest in Uptown, it had some bad news bears where that was concerned. For example, you needed to hold down the handle on the toilet, but not hold it down too long. And the sink was vile; not only was it rusty (no, Maintenance, painting it will not fix the problem), it had two handles AND faucets for a cold and hot side of your face during a wash.


One of the cool things that came with the house next door, is Invader Zim, Jason's cat. He's one of the most awesome cats ever. He looks drunk here.

Thanks to those who helped us move. It was invaluable; yeah we had like two months notice and it was next door, but when it got down to the wire it was still like "OH SWEET MOSES, WE NEED TO GET OUR STUFF OUT!!!!" We were considering leaving a doubledecker for the next tenants (they dont check the toliet tank when doing move-out checkups!), but opted not to.

Chuck Norris got moved behind the pool table upstairs. Hopefully he’ll improve our game. Also, between the three of us, we now have four mini fridges. Can't ever really have enough of those. Anyway, you folks have a good week. I’m rolling into Florida for the week like a hurricane.

i fucking hate moving more than i fucking hate anything else.

Jay said...

Moving sucks. I've moved 23 times in 20 years and it's sucked ass every single time. But, leaving a double decker would have made it more fun.

Beach Bum said...

I'm not big on cats but Zim is cool. Have a good time in Florida.

Meghan said...

LOL, great name for a cat.

AngryMan said...

Can you come help us move at the end of the month?

Mike said...

Have fun in Florida and I am willing to bet that you and the cat have a big fight within the first month of living there.

Slyde said...

The best thing about having a cat is the possibility of free Chinese food if you ever get sick of that bitch.

Narm said...

As a person who has been on both ends of the uppder-decker - you made a wise choice.

They don't check the toilet tank? Now you tell me...

Hammer said...

Fuckin A. I used to dump my shitty furniture off the third floor balcony. Whatever broke wasn't worth having.
